Autorentext

C. J. Tudor's love of writing, especially the dark and macabre, started young. When her peers were reading Judy Blume, she was devouring Stephen King and James Herbert.

Over the years she has had a variety of jobs, including trainee reporter, radio scriptwriter, dog walker, voiceover artist, television presenter, copywriter and, now, author.

Her first novel, The Chalk Man, was a Sunday Times bestseller and has sold in over forty countries. The Taking of Annie Thorne is her second novel.

Klappentext

None of us ever agreed on the exact beginning.
Was it when we started drawing the chalk figures,
or when they started to appear on their own?
Was it the terrible accident?
Or when they found the first body?



Zusammenfassung

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER & SHORTLISTED FOR A NATIONAL BOOK AWARD AND THE STEEL DAGGER, BEST THRILLER AWARD . . .

A DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOK OF THE YEAR

'If you like my stuff, you'll like this' STEPHEN KING

'A tense gripper with a leave-the-lights-on shock ending' Sunday Times
________________

You can feel it in the woods, in the school and in the playground; you can feel it in the houses and at the fairground. You can feel it in most places in the small town of Anderbury . . . the fear that something or someone is watching you.

It began back in 1986, at the fair, on the day of the accident. That was when twelve-year-old Eddie met Mr Halloran - the Chalk Man.

He gave Eddie the idea for the drawings: a way to leave secret messages for his friends and it was fun, until the chalk men led them to a body.

Thirty years later, Ed believes the past is far behind him, until an envelope slips through the letterbox. It contains a stick of chalk, and a drawing of a figure.

Is history going to repeat itself?

Was it ever really over?

Will this game only end in the same way?
